Pretty Little Stamps


Lookie what I have here.
A card just for fun!
And with an image of a "pretty little stamp" called Loveable Avie from (you guessed it) Pretty Little Stamps (formerly Gurlee Girl Stamps). I have been wanting to get my hands on some of Chelsea's rubber for some time, but funds and time never allowed, so when I saw that she is going digital.....I HAD to jump on it , then & there!! I was so excited to see these cute little angels.
I've colored her with copics. And added my plethora of embellies! LOL



These papers are form 3 different paper packs I think !
Lace is from WOC.
 I've added a little bit of Tim Holtz filmstrip and fuschia seam binding with a pearl brad center. 
The sentiment is from JUSTWORDZ!  



Challenges for my card:
Little Miss Muffet Challenge-Valentines or love
CES Challenge- lots of layers (3 or more)
Make it Colorful- spring colors
Color Me Creative- colors of love 
Crafty Your Days Away- get stitchy with it
CLP Sketch Challenge- see below (I totally flipped it upside down)

PS- if your still here, I just wanted to update you on a post I did a while back about a girl named Darah fighting to beat osteosarcoma.....SEE THIS POST......

Here is what her mom wrote on the 'A Day for Darah' Facebook page

UPDATE: Darah flew out to Vancouver on January 23rd to

 undergo some scans of her leg and lungs prior to surgery.

 We are ecstatic that the CT of her lungs remains clear since 

December 16th. The chemotherapy has been working well 

and has contributed significantly to the shrinkage in the very 

large tumor she had in her thigh muscle and connective 

tissue which measured 20 cm x 8 cm x 9 cm. ALthough the 

tumor had reduced in size, it still needed to be completely 

taken out to minimize the chance of the aggressive cancer 

coming back again. Because of the size of it and the amount

 of tissue and bone that was affected, Darah was told she 

would possibly lose her entire left leg at the hip. Dr. Ken 

Brown, who is the best surgeon in Canada and some say, 

best in the world for this type of tumor removal, had told us

 that he was going to try his best to salvage the bottom 

healthy portion f her leg with a very rare surgical procedure 

called a Van Nes Rotationplasty (only 12 performed a year in 

North America). He also mentioned that it would be very 

challenging and complicated and not without many risks. 

After 16 hours of surgery on January 31st, Darah came out 

of the operating room able to feel her toes wiggle. She was 

very happy they were able to salvage the bottom portion of 

her leg with the rotationplasty. This will allow her to play 

sports again whereby her ankle joint will be her new knee 

joint and she will only require a below-the-knee prosthetic 

rather than a full leg prosthetic. Darah is recovering well and 

after only 6 days post surgery, and to the delight of the 

surgeon, Darah is tolerating physiotherapy very well and 

able to stand and walk a few steps at a time. We will be in 

Vancouver for atleast another 2 weeks to undergo 

chemotherapy and to ensure she is fit to fly before we 

return home. ALthough Darah has had the tumor removed

 from her leg and the ones from her lungs appear to be 

gone, she still must undergo chemotherapy and radiation 

until mid July 2012 to ensure every cancer cell is eliminated.

We will also likely have to return to Vancouver a few more 

times in the next 6 months for further specialized therapy 

and prosthesis fittings. We just want to thank each and 

every one of you for the continued support through the past

 8 months and we will keep on fighting and each day will get 

closer to Darah being cancer-free and active again. We love 

and thank you all. xoxo Dana, Darah and Family.

Thank you, to those of you who sent cards and monetary donations I really appreciate it. If 

anyone else wants to send some well wishes cards, pls feel free to mail them to me at

Also, just to update you further Darah is up and walking with the aid of crutches and a wheelchair. The prostethics will come in time. She still has to undergo a few more weeks of chemo before she heads home! Definitely makes you stop and think............what's important in life!
